Shy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Shy
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Castor Rex mix
Home: Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
   Shy is around ten months (I don't know really but her vet estimated that she is around that age). She is a Castor Rex who might have a Belgian Hare mix as she has very big ears for Rex! I got Shy from a pet store last December. I lost my beloved French Lop, Sparky, during her teeth trimming operation so I was not in the mood to get an animal when I visited the store with my mother. But I can tell you that it was love in first sight with Shy.

    She was hiding her head under her bedding to avoid human contact. Probably she thought that if she did not see anyone, no one would see her. This is why I named her Shy. However, the moment I brought her home she has been everything but shy. Much to my amusement, she chose her potty point on my couch and her sleeping place on my bed. Time to time we get into this argument about who sleeps in what side in bed and all the time I loose the argument after getting a painful nudge on my back. We resolve the issue by switching sides at the end. She is my only pet and I love every single minute I spend with her. I love her energetic, overly excited behavior and her affection to me, and hope to have her around for a long time to come.
